Eamonn Holmes has confessed that his evenings have become a little more difficult since joining GB News.

The TV presenter and journalist, 62, launched his own show on the network alongside co-host Isabel Webster earlier this month.

Writing in his column, Eamonn confessed that he dreads the early wake-up call for the programme, which airs weekdays from 6am.

According to the Express, he penned: ‘The early starts do take their toll, but knowing that you’re meeting up with one of your best friends, the work becomes much more fun and time tends to fly.

‘The evenings can be a bit more difficult. My big dread about what’s ahead is insomnia and what feels like a “sleep hangover” the next day.’

Insomnia means you regularly have problems sleeping, the NHS reports. It usually gets better by changing your sleeping habits.

Eamonn previously admitted he ‘didn’t sleep a wink’ before his GB News debut earlier this month.

The show featured interviews with guests including Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi, who congratulated the pair on their inaugural programme.

Eamonn led segments about his native Northern Ireland, post-Brexit trade and the use of fireworks during the festive period.

Addressing his return to early starts, he told viewers: ‘We are coming to the end of our first day – and hopefully not our last day of the GB News breakfast show. A new look.’

Closing the programme, he quipped: ‘I need to make a long-term plan about how to get up in the morning. I didn’t sleep a wink last night.

‘My kids brought me a fancy alarm clock that went off and then I couldn’t turn it off.’

It was announced in November that Eamonn was leaving ITV after 15 years hosting This Morning alongside his wife Ruth Langsford.

He said at the time: ‘I’ve spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups and GB News is one of the most exciting yet. It’s just the kind of shake-up the industry needs.

‘I’ve admired GB News from the beginning for its clever mix of punchy debate but delivered with warmth and even some fun.

‘To me the greatest honour in journalism is to give a voice and respect to the unheard, and that’s exactly what GB News is all about.’

Breakfast With Eamonn And Isabel airs on weekdays from 6am to 9.30am.
